While out on a walk, the night before the appointment, we ran into one of our favorite neighbors. The little girl, who is Brock's age, mentioned a possible playdate for the following day, to which Brock replied, "I can't, I have a dentist appointment." What 4 year old keeps a schedule!? Well, the next morning, we found George covered in vomit, so his appointment was cancelled, but the other two excitedly headed out for their first dentist experience. They loved it. Matt said they behaved perfectly. Brock carried home his little goody bag with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, a sticker and bouncy ball, and did not put that thing down for the rest of the day. In fact, he is still storing all the stuff in that little plastic bag and puts it under his pillow to sleep at night!
As a reward for their fabulous behavior, Matt took them to the zoo. While there, and riding the "Sky Safari" (aka ski lift), Brock smiled at a lady passing on the other side, and yelled "look how white my teeth are! I went to the dentist!" Also, apparently he exclaimed, "My teeth are so clean the girls' heads are going to pop off" while getting his cleaning. Curtis, though slightly less obsessive (ok, a lot less obsessive) than Brock, also talked about this adventure for days. He mostly just liked the fish tank at the office and the bouncy ball he acquired.
For the record, they both got a clean bill of tooth health.
